Q: I heard a friend talking about how they can receive free admission to museums with their Bank of America card. Is this true?
A: Art, history and paleontology: whatever your pleasure, the Bank of America Museums on Us program will get you in. For free.
Available to all Bank of America and Merrill Lynch credit and debit card holders, the program gets you one admission per card at over 150 museums. All you have to do is show your card and ID. Now for the fine print:
- The offer is good only on the first full weekend of any month. Not sure which one that is? Bank of America offers a handy-dandy list here, under “Details.”
- You get one general admission per card. Any fees for special exhibits or events are on you.
- You must show your photo ID.
There are currently 29 states participating, with everything from art to zoos. You can sign up for email or text reminders of upcoming eligible weekends on the website home page.
There is a location search that lists participating museums by city that helpfully includes operating hours, phone numbers, addresses and other information.
As an aside, the Museums on Us website is a Flash-based site, so if your mobile device is Flash-unfriendly, check the data before you head out the door.
